Best of South Florida? You choose them!

With the season winding down, all-star teams will soon be chosen by The Miami Herald and other outlets in the region. If you had to make one all-star team of players from Miami-Dade and Broward, regardless of school size or grade, what would be the perfect first team for the nation's elite football region?

Is Eugene Smith your quarterback? How about the trio of Lamar Miller, Brandon Gainer and Devon Wright in the backfield with Gio Bernard, Corvin Lamb, James White and Eduardo Clements moving to the second team?

Who would be your kicker, defensive backfield, linebackers, linemen and receivers? What one head coach would you choose to direct this team?

Let's see who you would pick to face off with Los Angeles, Houston, Cincinnati, Atlanta or Dallas for the best prospect region in the country?

You would have to consider Steven Jacques and Ashley Bullock from South Broward for the offensive line. Definite Steven Jacques (committed to Auburn already)

RICK TRUTH SPEAKER

THIS IS NO EASY SELECTION AND I MIGHT BE BIASED, BUT I HOPE I'M NOT. QUARTERBACK WOULD BE EITHER EUGENE SMITH OR JEFFREY GODFREY. RUNNING BACKS WOULD HAVE TO INCLUDE HARGRETT, GORE, BERRY AND MILLER. THIS YEAR IS FAR MORE EVEN THAN LAST YEAR, BUT I STILL FEEL NORTHWESTERN WILL WIN ANOTHER STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. PSALMS 14

Pantherfan

QB- Flores, NMB
RB- Miller, Killian
RB- Gore, Columbus
RB- Berry, Palmetto
I'd also add Oliver, Southridge
OL- Myers, Palmetto

K- Karpiak, Palmetto (kid has one of the strongest legs I have seen in a long time in Dade) and he also has to play QB full-time.

I'll defer to my colleagues on the rest of the selections.

Kid is a monster...6'4", 300 lbs, 17 years old! Underrated because he was on a losing team. But RB's ypc was above a 6.0. Know your football Dade County. Stop only looking for the name of the school, look for the players

One more thing. Lineman Coach at Jackson Gui Cunha has done an amazing job. 4 out of his 5 OL got full Division 1 athletic scholarships. You wanna go to college, then you go play for Coach Cunha at Jackson.

blustein intern

Swami Smith this the South Florida teams, these players are excellent players and will be all state but we are just talking about South Florida. By the way, Ben Dusek, coming from up north is a hellafide return man and quarterback he runs easily in the 4.3 range. Great team you picked just different region.

#3 Eric Hurst from krop who played several positions this, LB,Safety,specail teams, punt return. he avaerage 31 yards per return.He had 83 tackles this season and 1 interception . I has bee over looked because he play's with Quan flecther

WR-Rodney Smith (Carroll FSU Commit)
DB-Terrance Taylor (Carroll Rutgers Commit)
DB-Corey Ammons (Carroll UCF Commit)

All three are best at there positions in dade county, all three are dade broward all star invitees. Rodney is one of 3 south florida finalist for US Army Game.

lasalle

Delvin Jones 21sacks over 65tackles 3df 6'5" 230lb and have over 20 collages looking at him at la salle

lasalle

this big DE from la salle is amazing his first year ever playing football he ract up over 20 sacks and over 65 tackles this kid is one of the most talented DE in the countrie he has the size speed and strength to play D1

abcfan

what did the big de do against carroll?

#1fan

(Fact)I know one thing Branden Oliver is the tuffest running back in dade, this kid wears down defenses. Hes played against all the top teams just go ask them (NW132YRS,BTW153YRS,KIL130YRS,) who was the tuffest back they faced this yr. He's very durable 194 carries without getting hurt and can give and take the pounding. Some RB's on these list either didn't play half the season or didn't play in every game because of injuries. the college that gets this kid wounld've found a diamond in the ruff

lasalle

he did not do to good against carroll but the kid is really good and have amazing strength and on top of that this is the kid first year ever playing high school football and do you see the type of numbers he put up you have to be impressed with it

lasalle

he did not do too good against carroll but the kid is really good and his numbers speak for its self you would not believe the type of strength this kid have.Did you know this is the kid fisrt year playing high school football you have to be impressed you cannot find too many kids that can do that

Luckyson

I have to be Honest FANS!!! Senior LB Kendrick Daye #21 was not NOMINATED because his COACHES fail to update his stats and also Adrian Blue both were big defensive Leaders on the Palmetto Panthers Football team!!! I had a talk with them both and they seem to be disappointed especially Kendrick who has not even been elected to play in NO North/South Dade/Broward game!!! Great Season Team
